Maxxis' most popular training tire, providing excellent traction, durability and plenty of road miles in any condition. Maxx Shield helps provide a tire that Re-Fuses to puncture.
Wirebead: As it can be the economy option, it is used for downhill riding. The wire beads are less elastic than the aramid-fiber (Kevlar) beads used in folding tires, which helps hold the tire to the rim in hard cornering at lower tire pressure.
Folding: The main advantage of a folding-bead tire is its weight. The aramid fiber beads weigh less than steel wire. Folding beads are also easier to store and travel with.
TPI: TPI stands for threads per Inch. It defines the number of threads contained in one inch of the tire casing. The lower the number of TPI, the larger the gauge cords in the casing. Thus, the more durable the tire becomes. The higher the TPI, the more lightweight the tire becomes and the more supple the ride of the tire.
Single Compound: One compound throughout the tread optimized for longevity and performance.
MaxxShield: MaxxShield represents the ultimate in flat protection. Maxxis begin with their SilkShield bead to bead protection and add their K2 (Kevlar® Composite) layer for unparalleled durability.
